Snickers Satisfies Hunger For Confusing Bigotry

This is an ad for Snickers (via Gawker). We’ll talk about it in a second.

Bzzzzzzzzt. Something in my brain just exploded. Exploded to the MAX. On the face of it, this ad is crazy homophobic, but then the tagline is “Get Some Nuts.” Ay ay ay. Is that even a thing? Is speed walking a homophobe thing? “Those fags are always speed walking. Demanding equal rights and speed walking, I’m sick of it!”

Since the PC POLICE (aka human beings) have forced Mars to remove the ad from circulation, I’ve taken the liberty of making my own Snickers commercial after the jump. It doesn’t have quite the same “hate crime” urgency to it, but I think it gets the point across.

Whoops. I forgot to ad the tagline. It’s “Snickers: Fuck You.”
